Tarcoola Equestrian Centre- Beechwood started operating in July 2005. It is situated on the Pappinbarra River near the picturesque village of Beechwood in the Hastings Valley. A family run business, Rachael Clarke along with her parents, Les and Robyn, offer high quality facilities that cater for Agistment, Horse training, and lessons. There's an indoor arena for all weather riding, and a friendly experienced atmosphere!
Rachael started riding at the age of 5 and from an early age, it was clear that she had a burning desire and obvious love for horses so combining that with passion, dedication and determination, Rachael, along with the support of her parents, has been able to pursue a career in educating and training the young, old, nervous, confident and/or difficult horse and rider. With her many years of experience comes a philosophy that a horse will not perform to its very best unless, it is treated with due respect and a gentle but firm approach to handling and riding. Rachael and her team pride themselves on their positive, enthusiastic and friendly approach toward their pupils and horses alike.
We love horses...we want to share our passion with you!
All, of the horses at Tarcoola have been vaccinated and boosters current for the Hendra Virus.
